EPICENTER reaches playoffs

The group stage of EPICENTER has been played out, with the six teams which will compete in the playoffs on December 21-22 now decided.

Vitality and mousesports were the two teams that topped their groups in Moscow, Russia, and claimed spots in the semi-finals that take place on Sunday.

s1mple and co. will face EG in the quarter-finals

Four more teams, those that finished second and third in the group stage, will be in the single-elimination BO3 playoffs, but they will start their road in the quarter-finals. After a win over Evil Geniuses in the match for seeding, forZe will be facing Heroic for a spot in the semi final, while Natus Vincere will be taking on Evil Geniuses in a match happening earlier than expected.

The two semi-finals will take place on Saturday, after a day off, with the four best teams facing off on Sunday in the semi finals and the subsequent grand final.

The whole schedule for the EPICENTER playoffs is as follows:

Saturday, December 21
12:00 Denmark Heroic vs. Russia forZe | BO3
15:00 Russia Natus Vincere vs. United States Evil Geniuses| BO3

Sunday, December 22
10:00 France Vitality vs. quarter #1 winner| BO3
13:00 Europe mousesports vs. quarter #2 winner| BO3
16:00 Grand final | BO3

More like zywho because s1mple is top 1 already, played and got to major with English speaking team, got to semi finals of the major and is currently the best player player with over 1050 maps and kd of 1.23, while poor zywho is 1.30 with only twice less maps - 500. S1mple is the goat

1 month of playing good doesn't erase 1 year of total failure. Good on them if they become a consistent contender in 2020, but imo I don't think so.

I'm sorry but it really does excuse it most teams don't ever reach a final let alone win a tournament and then its even rarer to win 3 in a row.

But now mouz will have to play two bo3s in a row. Theyll probably be drained after a bo3 vs NaVi. It wouldve been better to have the semi finals on saturday and the quarters on friday.

How does this seem like a bait to you? I know its possible that Navi will have to play two bo3s instead of mouz, but that doesnt take away from my point.
